Does anyone know of any Public Domain Japanese Monster Movies like Gamera or Godzilla?

I would appreciate any input. Thanks!

As far as I know, all the great Kaiju are protected by copyrights, trademarks, everything. I have purchased lots of boxed sets of cheap DVDs, some containing as many as 50 PD monster movies, and not once have I encountered a Gojira or Gappa or Gamera. You'll either have to buy them or resort to nefarious means.
